The Academy in Turmoil. First Report of the Temporary Commission to Study the Causes of Campus Unrest.
New York State Legislature, Albany.
The purpose of this study was to discover the underlying and fundamental causes of campus unrest. An attempt was also made to determine how much of campus unrest is a reflection of social ills, and how much is a reflection of current dissatisfactions and uneasiness concerning college curriculum. The report opens with a prologue by the Commission chairman Charles D. Henderson, which is followed by a statement by Stanley J. Reiben, the Commission's counsel, which expresses his insights into the problems of youth, and summarizes his impressions gained during the study year regarding the causes of campus unrest. The report deals with: (1) the structure of higher education in New York State; (2) campus unrest as a national phenomenon; (3) the scope of campus unrest in New York State, 1967-69; (4) selected case studies of campus unrest in New York State and some observations drawn from these case studies; (5) student concerns for reforming institutions of higher learning; (6) the proper role of constituents of the college community; (7) a summary of the 8 public meetings that were held throughout the State; and (8) the conclusions and recommendations. The act establishing the Commission is included in the appendix. (AF)
